Short Bio
As a North Carolina native, born and raised in Raleigh, I love all things North Carolina. Either enjoying the sunny beaches or grabbing a cold craft beer in the mountains, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Why did you choose UNC Chemistry?
As an NC state graduate I saw first hand what UNC basketball could accomplish. So as they say, if you can't beat them, join them. And UNC has a great chemistry Ph.D. program to top it off!

What are your future plans?
As a material chemist, creating materials with real world applications is my job and I plan to continue following this calling in an industrial setting after I graduate.
